Paris in spring time is fine although it hasn’t a patch on Scotland’s West Coast in autumn.
Soak up Scotland’s natural beauty with today’s Big Deal on a dinner, bed and breakfast stay at the Oban Caledonian Hotel.
Just over two hours from Glasgow by car, Oban is an easy destination for a short break. By rail from Glasgow, the journey is on the world famous West Highland Line. Eat your heart out, Eurostar!
Completed with the arrival of the West Highland Railway in 1882, the Oban Caledonian Hotel is one of the town’s landmark hotels and it enjoys a great location by the harbour – perfect for watching the boats come and go to the islands.
Option one of today’s great offer is for two people to enjoy a 2 night stay in a double or twin room at the Oban Caledonian.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast in the morning, guests will enjoy a two course meal in the hotel’s candlelit Restaurant Caledonian on the first evening of stay.
Option 1 is for an overnight stay with dinner.
There is a £10 supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays.
While it dates to Victorian times, the hotel features 21st century facilities such as free WiFi in all 59 of the bedrooms.
In keeping with the hotel’s seafront location, each of the Caledonian’s well appointed bedrooms has a nautical theme.
Standard rooms mainly have views to McCaig’s Folly and the Soroba Hills and there is the option to upgrade to sea view rooms which look out over Oban Bay to Kerrera.
This fantastic offer includes a two course dinner in the candlelit Restaurant Caledonian. Carefully restored with chandeliers and ornate plasterwork, the Restaurant is a Victorian dining room showcasing the best of Scotland’s larder.
The menu changes daily in keeping with the seasons and local produce available. Seafood from the cold, clean surrounding waters is a speciality.
See & do
As well as being the departure point for ferries to Mull and beyond, Oban and the surrounding area are packed with great things to see and do. From a tour of Oban Distillery to a Seafari adventure via whale watching, you won’t be bored.
The Oban Caledonian Hotel has won lots of praise over the years. These recent reviews are from enthusiastic TripAdvisor contributors:
‘Best hotel in Oban. Stayed at the Oban Caledonian 2 nights from Sat 31st August. This is our second year staying at this hotel. This is the best hotel to stay in Oban, great location, spotlessly clean, good food and the staff are all lovely. The staff were all very chatty…The rooms we stayed in 110 and 114 were gorgeous with great views… We have stayed in a few places in Oban and nothing compares to the Caledonian. It would always be our first choice. Thanks again for a lovely weekend.’
‘Loved the decor. The decoration is amazing, very vintage and beautiful. It almost seems an old ship :) some rooms might need some renewal but still, the hotel by the sea is incredible, the staff very nice and the breakfast with all you can have! The area is central and the buses stop right in front of the hotel. If u have a car it might be more complicated to find a parking spot but we managed one just in front of the hotel. You can have internet for free.’
